The Book Of Tomorrow By Cecelia Ahern review :)

Hi lovelies!

Today's post is going to be a book review by Cecelia Ahern, the book is called "The Book Of Tomorrow" and is about a girl called Tamara. Her life changes dramatically after her Dad commits suicide. The cover of this book caught my eye, the purple and gold detailing is so pretty :D By the name I thought it was going to be an optimistic book, but it is definitely the opposite. The book is very philosophical and talks a lot about life. I found it quite a sad read but an interesting one. The plot is very clever :) I won't tell you anymore in case you read it, but the end is quite spectacular.

Tamara moves in with her aunt and uncle, who live in the countryside. One day Tamara finds a book which has a padlock on it. She unlocks it and with it, an adventure...

Blurb: "Tamara Goodwin has always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow. Until a travelling library arrives in her tiny village, bringing with it a mysterious, large leather-bound book locked with a gold clasp and padlock. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core. A mesmerising story about how tomorrow can change what happens today."

Overall, the book was quite a good read. I borrowed this book from a library, so wouldn't buy it with my own money. I wouldn't read it again but I did enjoy reading it. I would have liked to have seen more adventure about the book itself in the story, but the ending did impress me and I would recommend it to someone who likes reading emotional books.

Storyline: 4/5
How hooked I was: 4/5
Overall: 3/5

The book is written by the same author as PS I love you. I haven't read the book of that yet but I have seen the movie and the movie is well worth watching!

Hope you enjoyed! Sarah xxxxxxxx


  1. Unfortunately, Cecelia Ahern's best work in this book is her delineation of her main character, Tamara, a bored, snotty, foul-mouthed 16-year-old girl with whom you'll want to spend very little time. Beyond that, everything falls flat. Plot? Practically nothing happens for about 200 pages except that Tamara notices a few things are weird.

    1. True, the character is a bit of a brat. I did get very bored for a while, I kept thinking, when is this going to get interesting?!? But I thought the ending was very good :) Wasn't expecting it anyway. Thanks for commenting!
